Reviewed 5 November 2012

Back home from our third visit to this hotel.
We just love it , like a comfy old slipper. Yes it would benefit from an update , but we dont care and just love it as it is.
Excellent location - excellent views of the sea from every room.
Pools are great, plenty of sunbeds. Food is great , there is usually a huge joint of meat being freshly carved most nights. Lovely staff - lovely people - clean - friendly and great.
Plenty of shops on the doorstep if you venture out . What more do you need.
Will be going back again

I returned from the grand teguise playa hotel on the 1/11/12 and i can say there were no problems at all
The rooms were not great but were good and clean,as ha sbeen said in other reviews the hallway carpets do need replacing but i was not sleeping in the hallway. The reception and main bar area was
quite stunning with the live plants creepers hanging from the floors above and the large fish pool in front of the bar .Bar service was very good and drinks flowed liberaley.
the food in the restarant was excellent and i can not understand the comments about "repetteive food" and "no choice"all meals were good even the mexican night and every lunch time there was BBQ option
outside, i suppose some people just want to eat fish and chips all the time like they are on holiday in Southend.
Pool area was fine with one heated pool and one non heated but to me they were both cold sun beds were not a problem there were six of us and we still managed to get beds together.
Entertainment was good for a Spanish hotel, not as good as londons westend but where is the STARMAN SHOW and the BEATLES TRIBUTE BAND were very entertaining all in all a very good holiday.

The hotel, it has to be said, is starting to show it's age. The signs of wear and tear are glaringly abundant and the decor is rooted in the early eighties - indeed, the genre of music piped around the hotel is happy to keep this theme alive, great for a surreal flashback to our youth as the Eye of the Tiger follows on from a whole Bee Gees or Abba album. Fantastic.

But what a pleasant break! We spent a week at the hotel with three teenagers who were entertained and well fed (a diet of cake and donuts in the main, mmmm...) so leaving mum and dad time to sleep and read.

The rooms we had were sea facing with a balcony looking out over the lagoon, perfect for quiet morning starts with a book when everyone else is happy to snooze on.

Great activities throughout the day, family orientated with competitive parents trying to reclaim their youth in archery, shooting and mini golf. The pool area was great, three pools to separate all ages. And the management have actually gripped the German sunbed/towel thing. Not a towel in sight at 0700 hours or thereafter (despite I reckon, a 50-50 split in Brit/German guests). Respect.

Evening entertainment alternated between the resourceful hotel team and imported acts, both delivering a range of talented and engagingly quirky performances. Particular praise for the small hotel entertaiment team who worked their socks off to deliver a great service day and night.

Restaurant food was varied and plentiful; a good standard generally, but there was a sense that the management were trying to cater for all tastes at the expense of quality. A more targeted menu would help the kitchen staff. And don't bother with the machine generated fruit juice, it was undrinkable along with the table wine!

This place is what it is. We had a great week's break (all inclusive) at a price significantly less than the competition. Ignore the slighly tatty and dated feel to the place, focus on the cheerful and helpful service provided by the staff coupled with the facilities and you'll not go wrong.

Room Tip: Go for fourth floor sea facing.

Third visit to this hotel in 3 yrs, perfect position fantastic sea views, food lovely and hot, plenty of choice , entertainment better this year Adrian on animation team is lovely gets everyone to join in,
Had our usual room and always made to feel welcome,
Hotel management trying to stop people saving sun beds they remove towels if on beds before 9 am unattended, though saw lots of people out about 7.30 am to get favourite spot it was still dark ..that's not what we call a holiday ..
This hotel could do with a bit of an update but too many people moan about carpets , can't understand why they go there because they must have read the reviews, then they come home and moan about it., but for us a warm welcome and making lots of new friends is what makes a holiday not the decor. This hotel stands majestically in probably the best position on the island, direct access to the beach and shops and bars all around.
Pools are salt water and one is heated, and pool area is kept spotless.
A few people say this hotel doesn't merit 4 stars but I never seen such a grand 3 star hotel,
All in all this hotel has a lovely laid back atmosphere, nothing is too much trouble and we can't wait to return.

My husband and I have just returned from 11 nights at this hotel and we had a great time. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The view from our very private balcony was amazing. We had booked half board and the food was very good and there were lots of choice with different theme evenings throughout our stay. The pool area was spacious and clean. The bar and entertainment area was relaxing. The carpets do need updating but they are in the process of refurbishment. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room as the views are amazing.

This hotel is in a decent location but is in great need of a full overhaul. Nice entrance lobby is offset by corridors with threadbare, stained carpets. Our room had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke (all non-smoking rooms!) that slowly dissipated over the week. Food was dreadful, thankfully we hadn't paid for full board and there are several good restaurants locally. If I had gone full board I'd have still eaten out. One positive is that staff were friendly and helpful.
